The Weeknd's 'Take My Breath' steals the No.1 spot from Ed Sheeran.

The Weeknd's 'Take My Breath' has put a stop to Ed Sheeran's iconic run at the top this summer.

After 7 weeks, 'Bad Habits' has finally been toppled from the number 1 spot.

'Take My Breath' is The Weeknd's first single from his new era and features disco-infused, synth-wave elements that take inspiration from the 80s and 90s.

The Weeknd's track is also this week's biggest climber, jumping up 11 places to the very top of the Official Big Top 40.

This week's highest New Entry comes from Joel Corry & Jax Jones' 'OUT OUT' feat. Charli XCX & Saweetie.

The track samples Stromae's massive 2010 dance hit 'Alors On Danse'.
